Kyoko Omori

Associate Professor of East Asian Languages and Literatures Kyoko Omori recently gave an invited talk at the Edogawa Rampo’s Modernity Symposium at Rikkyo University in Tokyo.

Naming himself after American writer Edgar Allan Poe, pronounced “E-do-ga Wa-Ran Po” in Japanese, Edogawa Rampo (1894-1965) became one of the major modern writers in Japan.

In her talk, “The Soundscape of Modernity: Edogawa Rampo and Voice,” Omori discussed archival materials from Rampo’s personal collection as well as essays and other literary works in order to illuminate his response to the shifting environment for sound and voice in modern Japan.
